Passing out in weird places is part of any good drunk’s job, but a Norwegian tourist has taken the artform to a whole new level by falling asleep on an airport baggage belt, and taking a trip back to the scanners.
The unnamed 36-year-old tourist was about to check in for a flight, but found no attendant at the desk. His elegant solution to the problem was, of course, to hop behind the desk, and pass out on the baggage belt. Fifteen minutes later, the tourist was traveling deep into the bowels of the “secure” baggage area, where his huddled, drunken form was spotted on one of the X-Ray baggage scanners.
Airport security’s reaction? “There’s usually an episode like this once a year and we are alert,” an official told the Telegraph. “In this case we were notified we sounded the alarm immediately and we took action.” If this isn’t the first instance of this, you’d think might have developed a more proactive solution to the problem. Maybe that tourist isn’t the only one who’s been drinking. [La Repubblica.it via Telegraph]
